The start of the new year always brings the passing of the crowns from one generation of Plant City royalty to the next, and the 2021 Junior Royalty Pageant kept that tradition alive after a year that was anything but.
After nearly five hours of a tough competition, four girls walked away with new titles and a new duty to represent Plant City. Bridget Mae McLaughlin was named 2021 Junior Royalty Queen and her court includes Princess Brooke Sidnei Browning, Duchess Danica Faith Gill and Baroness Carrigan Beau Brake.
